Technical review consultations are held regularly with interested landowners and developers regarding the local permitting process for residential, commercial, and industrial projects. The goal is to address any technical questions and issues prior to applicants going before a town regulatory board.
The consultation team is composed of town staff, officials, and utility company representatives. Meetings are informal and advisory only. Prospective applicants must still follow all applicable administrative reviews and approval requirements.
